Beauty and persona in slivered fragments by Amanda Clyne

Children's illustrations by Paolo Domeniconi










“I begin my process by culling images from fashion magazines and art history books, intrigued by the similarities I see between contemporary fashion photography and historical portraits of society’s elite – images intended to fuel a spectacle of desire with feigned promises of intimacy and truth.
Cropping the image into a portrait, I re-print the image on to a surface to which the ink does not adhere, photographing the print as the fluid image morphs and dissolves over time. I then compose a new image from fragments of these photographs. I paint this final image as a large-scale painting, the shifting, slivered fragments offering yet denying the viewer resolution of a now elusive form.”
